Mid-Century Modern Architecture Travel Guide (West Coast USA)
by Sam Lubell ; photography by Darren Bradley

Here’s a new book to put in your glove compartment. This nifty volume covers 254 Mid-Century Modern sites from Seattle to San Diego, with lively text and new photography. Detailed history and appraisal includes notes on visiting, or if you can just admire from curbside. Maps, detailed visitor info, glossary, and architect directory make this a truly useful guide. Its comprehensive nature includes the widely noted and lionized Modernists as well as “a much larger crop of equally talented, but now-forgotten architects.” Contemporary color photos emphatically convey the architecture’s current vitality. This book is a needed addition to your library—whether you wind your way along Route 1, or travel the coast in your armchair.
Phaidon Press, 2016, 376 pages, softcover, $35.
